The report also documents relationships Newman had with vendors seeking to do business with the department, including Bloodydecks, LLC. As part of the investigation, auditors found emails between Newman and Bloodydecks representatives, and presented those emails in the report:

Oct. 20, 2011: Bloodydecks Representative Brant Crenshaw emailed Mr. Newman: "Sign up for this...I pick the winners ...aftco-guy-harvey-giveaway"

Oct. 31, 2011: Mr. Newman emailed Mr. Crenshaw: "Did I win the AFTCO contest!!!"

Mr. Creshaw replied to Mr. Newman: "not yet...lol....i think Mo should win instead "

Mr. Newman replied to Mr. Creshaw: "That works!"

Mr. Creshaw replied to Mr. Newman: "figured."

Nov. 1, 2011: Mr. Creshaw emailed Mr. Newman a proposal for Bloodydecks to provide advertising services for LDWF: "Hey Man: Let me know if you have any questions regarding the proposal. There are a lot of moving parts and we need to create a bunch of content as well as web developmental issues. This will help us when we talk about doing your site and will not only give us a jump start, but also a taste of what we can do for you guys. Trust me, we want to work with you and will not disappoint. That's not our program....we go above and beyond, to a fault....you have my word on that. Fun aside, I take business very personal and stand behind everything I say or do. If there is ever a problem, I'm the guy that'll get it handled. I really think we can start something great.....and that's not just sales BS. I consider you a friend, and like you, I tell it like it is. Let me know what you need and we'll make it happen."

Nov. 3, 2011: Mr. Crenshaw emailed Mr. Newman: "What do you know....Mo won. Have you had a chance to look at the proposal?"

Mr. Crenshaw posted on the Bloodydecks website: - Week Three Winner is: Monique Savoy Congrats .... you've just won $100 worth of AFTCO gear. Nice work and thanks for entering.

The team purchased $677,585 worth of boating equipment, fishing and water sports equipment, vehicle equipment, household supplies and groceries, clothing, cameras and other items.


They bought some boats I hope.

Just how dumb do you have to be?

These buffoons STILL have no idea that email is more permanent than a tattoo? They ought to have to do time just for pretending to be human; clearly, a brain pan filled to the capacity of the average thimble.

I would give them 20 years just for choosing Yeti ice chests with tax dollars.

Reading further into it, it appears as if Shimano Corporate is also involved. I wonder what will eventually happen!

First, I don't think I do anything illegal, but IF were to consider doing it, I would discuss it in person or possibly by phone, depending on the phone in question!! Why to these morons send emails and memos??

After reading both articles, it appears that these two were likely charter fishing on taxpayer time, with taxpayer equipment! How do you lose track of 20 Yeti coolers, it's like they are the $3.00 Styrofoam ones!! He'll probably end up in congress!
